"Do this, do that, don't do that, stop that, keep on doing this"
is burdensome as can be
Why can't those in authority respect me for me?
I've learn to communicate I've learn right from wrong
I am an adult now,
yet my parents still try to instruct me by telephone
"Do this, I did, do that, I did , don't do that, I didn't
stop that, I stopped, keep on doing this, I am,"
I've left home, I live alone, I got a job I pay my bills,
I obey the law, I phone home
Don't my parent know that I am grown?
I am my own woman? with Jesus's help I stand on my own
I love you mom, I love you dad
I ain't telling you to leave me alone
I am just saying have some faith in me,
I need for you to believe in yourselves
to believe that you taught me well
To know that your implantation is installed for life
Cause I don't do anything without consulting
the holder of my life
I am just asking you to have some faith in me
To do the things you each taught me to do
Now realize I can never be free
Until you stop trying to control me.
